Gardeners and those interested in horticulture should visit Mounts Botanical Garden. Located an easy drive from any Palm Beach County home, Mounts has a number of specimen gardens with different themes. Stroll through the begonia garden or the bulb garden and get inspired to plant some flowers in your yard. Make time to see the butterfly garden. You’ll be rewarded with the sight of many lovely species of butterflies. Pick up a copy of the butterfly garden handout to see how to plant one yourself. A vegetable garden is a wonderful way to start out gardening. See the edible garden to find examples that grow well on Palm Beach County real estate. Kids who come to Mounts love the children’s maze. It’s made from a shrub that has sweet-smelling white flowers. The maze looks like a castle, complete with turrets.
